What does the logo mean to you?

Post by exxos » Fri Oct 11, 2019 4:14 pm

Fond past memories, and utter clusterfekshow since about 1997..

Decided I would not write what I think on Facebook as it would likely get deleted anyway along with any other negative comments no doubt :lol:

To me it means.. the collapse of a once great empire, a utter failure of marketing, corporate incompetence, a series of unfortunate events, same goes for Commodore.

To me it means warm memories, nothing more, nothing less.

In addition, when I came to know Ataris, it meant an outsider role in a Commodore dominated world. And I somehow always felt more comfortable as an underdog than beeing mainstream.

For me it will forever be the laser rod shooting from the cannon.
But I don't remember which game had that feature where your cannon was the atari logo, and you shot the middle part of the logo as a laser shot towards the enemies.
